    I can't seem to find information that specifically addresses Smart Card usage between Windows 7 versions. Does Windows Home Premium support Smart Card logon? Thanks.

    Only the professional version of Windows 7 (professional & ultimate) joined to a domain can achieve smart card logon.

    If you have a windows 7 ultimate but used at home, you still can't use smart card logon.
    Microsoft has designed the smart card logon to be used only in a professional context.

    If you have a family edition of Windows 7, you have to use third party software like the open source program EIDAuthenticate.
